Wilburn & Wilburn
Wilburn & Wilburn
The name “Wilburn” has been a part of the music industry for several years. It seems as though when you mention this family, people recognize that you are talking about music. Not just any music, but Gospel Music that is sang from the heart.
Wilburn & Wilburn is a new name but familiar faces. This father and son duo, combine a solid foundation of “Old School” with a flare of youthful presence to bring the message of Christ in a song.
Jonathan Wilburn has taken the stage with his family The Wilburns and Gold City Quartet. His tenure in Gospel music has brought him close to the heart of people from all ages. Jonathan states “Gospel Music is my way of telling people what Jesus means to me.” You will definitely understand what he is talking about the moment you have the experience of watching this seasoned veteran perform. It seems as though the fans agree, for Jonathan has been nominated and voted America’s #1 lead vocalist five times by the subscribers of The Singing News magazine. “My goal was never set on winning any award. I just wanted to sing and pray God would use my efforts to bring a little joy to somebody.” His singing started at a young age sitting beside his mother in church. Jonathan says “My greatest influence in singing was my mom [Elaine Wilburn]. She sings alto like nobody else.” After a long and fruitful time with his family group Jonathan became part of one of the most award winning Gospel groups of all time, Gold City Quartet. During his tenure of over 12 years this group experienced continued success with Jonathan as the group’s lead vocalist. Tim Riley says this about Jonathan, “He [Jonathan] is a Spirit filled singer with great energy on stage and I would recommend Wilburn & Wilburn for any church or promoter”.
Jordan Wilburn is a new name for Gospel music but with his ability to present a song with conviction and honesty, this talented young man will be singing his way into your heart very soon. Jordan has been in and around Gospel music all of his life. Jonathan says, “Before Jordan was born I would put headphones on my wife’s stomach and play gospel music.” So you guessed it, this boy was born singing. Jordan states, ” I have always loved singing about the goodness of Jesus. My dad has always been my hero and I am looking forward to being up there with him every night doing what God has for us to do.” Jordan will be finishing his history degree while on the road with his father. I believe America is ready for the fresh new talent of this dynamic singer. You will definitely be blessed by this new generation of Wilburns!
After years of prayer Wilburn & Wilburn are now on the road. They have a vision to bring fathers, sons, mothers, and daughters close again by expressing their love for one another through songs of faith and inspiration. Jonathan says, “God has a limitless supply of forgiveness and love. We just want to give families hope. God can take their problems and turn them into blessings!”
